Hello, my client has asked for the second girl behind to be edited out, I am no expert with this. Is it east to do or is there someone i can pay to fix this for me? I haven't edited these photos yet at all, this is straight out of camera. She has also asked for similar thing on the other picture except she wants both girls behind removed.

This one is harder because of the big rocks in the background.

Do you have any other photos from this same set, that would provide the missing background detail?

Ok first pic I had a crack at straightening it, not 100% sure if I did it right but I didn't change it to jpeg when I opened. If i change it to a jpeg file then how do I continue doing all my edits? My next question is, I have always done all my editing then saved it to my computer as a jpeg and then opened pic to just "crop and straighten it that way". I thought this was right as all my editing was done and I haven't been losing pixels this way? Then i tried cloning but it didn't work ha ha what have I done so wrong?

Second pic I will do tomorrow

Let's not go any further with this until you've taken the Bridge Class.  Your workflow is clearly an awful awful mess.

I have done the bridge class. Is there a service you can recommend that can do these edits for me? I am happy to pay someone to do it. If i knew how to edit like a pro I wouldn't be here. f I am doing things wrong then that is how I will learn. Some people are quicker than others I guess to catch on.

I save both. I save the JPEG to upload to their gallery and for socials and I save as a PSD also so if i need to go redo any editing. Im reading through your Bridge class now to see what im doing wrong.

You open the raw file into Photoshop, then you do the straightening as the VERY first step.

Before you've even saved it as a PSD.

You NEVER open a jpeg into Photoshop.  Ever.

Sorry let me explain myself again. I edited in ACR, then finish off the finer details in PS THEN once I'm done I save both jpeg and PSD. I would never edit a jpeg.

I had never used this straightening method before, did you discuss this in your classes? If so I have missed it and will look at it again. So what do i do now with editing the people out seeing as my cloning was a hot mess.

I'm sure I referenced it in the epilogue module of the Bridge Class.

Let's start over. May I see your SOOR, straightened?

Ok can you give me a quote for the 3 pics to edit? I have edited all the others and I just don’t want to spend anymore time on this job as I’m on now about $2 an hour 😂 in future I will definitely not be doing any photoshop work to peoples images for the same rate! I know I will need to learn how to edit properly I just don’t have the time right now.
